After reinventing the classic Chuck Taylor All-Star in 2020, A-Cold-Wall founder Samuel Ross and Converse are back for another collaboration, introducing a futuristic silhouette to the All-Star label, the Aeon Active CX.
The Aeon Active CX lifestyle silhouette was officially unveiled in June 2021 and is one of the newest entries in Converse’s CX line. Ross’ version features a slip-on upper that’s structured around Converse’s CX comfort technology, paired with an exaggerated heel and TPU heel wedge, making it easy to get on and off. The standout detail of the shoe is the CX foam midsole, which is partially created with Nike Crater foam and is made from approximately 12% reused off-cuts from factory floors.
The upper half is constructed from a mix of perforated suede and leather overlays with rounded lines, and the signature Ross aesthetic, which includes a bold color combination adorned with subversive graphic language, and a translucent outsole, dispersed around the entire assembly, resulting in a technical look.
The shoe is available in two colorways with a staggered rollout: the Micro Chip/Healing Jade/Black and the Black/Black/Apple Green are now available exclusively on A-Cold-Wall’s e-commerce site and via Converse.com and other selections. retailers. It is priced at $160.
